    Free to good home: 2 and a half year old Female Purebred American bulldog by the name of Karma. She's my father's dog, but unfortunately due to his health, She needs to be re-homed as he cant fully look after her as much as she needs. She's a very friendly, well-natured dog with alot of energy, So would need a home with someone with a bit of time and a strong hand. Would also prefer a house with no other animals or small children She's fully house trained, and is also primarily an outside dog. It is with deep regret that we have to find her a new home, but it's for the best for her.

Rescue Me ID: 14-08-15-00636Cruiser (male)

Boxer    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    WA - Cruiser (m/4y) Cruiser has reluctantly been handed to rescue due to a change in housing circumstances. He is a really nice boy. Cruiser is a great alarm system but extremely friendly to all he meets, including dogs. He has never met cats before so we are uncertain how he would react, but his easy going nature may mean he'd be fine. Cruiser adores the beach and the car. He is strong on a lead to start with but a harness and regular exercise will sort that out. He is a typical boxer being very extrovert.

Animal ID: still waiting in a cold shelter!!Mishka (female)

Boxer Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Located in New South Wales This delightful young lady is sure to win you over with her huge smile and her zest for life. Typical of the boxer breed, Mishka is very active and playful. She may be a little too big for young children but would make a great companion for a family with older children. She is a friendly girl who generally enjoys the company of other dogs and loves her human friends too. She will require minimal grooming but regular exercise to keep her fit and healthy. Being white, Mishka's new home will need to be one with lots of shade and access indoors.

Animal ID: 1 year in the shelter and zero interest?Coco & Whitey

Boxer    Age: Adult

Health: Vaccinations Current 

    NSW - Coco (f/6y) and Whitey (m/6y) Check our video: http://youtu.be/5xodmDcWpS0 A regretful surrender; this gorgeous pair of Boxers are in need of a home together. They absolutely adore each other and their new home must be one where they can continue to enjoy each other's company. Their family can, sadly, no longer keep them and writes the following about them: 'These two have been an inseparable pair since they were puppies. Whitey was born 18.8.07 & Coco 14.9.07; they are both now 6yrs old. They are very affectionate to each other things such as kisses, sleeping next to each other and laying on top of one another, sharing toys and ... (Read More)even their dry food. Whitey is a bit of a guts when it comes to dinner time, so his new family need to make sure Coco eats separately as she is a slower eater. It would also be wise to use a 'scoff stopper' bowl with Whitey which will slow down his eating to avoid issues with digestion/bloat. With people they know & trust, they love their time spent cuddling, receiving affection & playtime. Whitey is a very friendly boy with both other dogs & strangers, Coco however may be smaller but is the Alpha of the pair. She does not always get along with new dogs & strangers but with the correct introduction to both she soon warms up to them. Whitey is completely deaf but follows his partner (when he isn't asleep) with when to bark & when to respond. He responds to commands just like Coco does with simple hand gestures & food rewards, both being disciplined with simple commands. Both share interests in cats as they will sit & watch with curiosity, unless the cat decides to run away then they like to chase. They are both funny characters together & individually. Always wanting attention, cuddles & affection from the family. They enjoy their car trips with the windows down in the back of my station wagon. In the evenings they love to be inside on their mat and cuddle up to one another whilst over looking the family. The rescue would prefer they be indoor/outdoor dogs as Boxers can be very susceptible to the elements & the extreme heat and cold can have a negative effect on them. In Winter they will both need their coats on and in Summer have access to lots of shade, shelter and water (& not be walked during the hottest part of the day). Whitey does get allergies to some weeds. He has in the past had a rash under his belly which has been cleared up for over a year now and his tearing in one eye will get worse if he is showing a reaction to something in the yard. Boxers & many breeds can be affected by various plants/grasses in the garden. Wandering Jew is a problem & will cause irritation to many dogs, so this would need to be removed from their backyard. The two will spend hours laying in the morning sun, playing with their toys in the yard and chasing each other. Coco is fantastic at playing fetch and Whitey is great at intercepting her returns. In the summer Coco loves the water. Whitey will play in a kiddy pool filled with water too. A kids wading pool would be ideal for this pair to cool down and enjoy the sunny days.. These two are very intelligent, loving, funny characters and due to unforeseeable circumstances I am unable to keep them. They will be greatly missed but never forgotten in our hearts.' If you have experience with the Boxer breed & you believe your home could be ideal for this lovely pair, please get in touch for further details. We believe that dogs should be part of the family & share the home. The pair is located in Londonderry (Western Sydney) & this is where any potential meeting will be held. Whitey is deaf, so a family with experience with deaf dogs (or prepared to learn) is recommended. (Less)

Animal ID: still waiting in a cold shelter!!Max (male)

Boxer    Age: Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    NSW - Max (m/6y) The greying muzzle simply gives him a distinguished look; this boy is active, playful and behaves just like a pup - very typical of the Boxer breed. Max was surrendered to the pound by his owner and now finds himself looking for a long term home where he will be loved and cared for indefinitely. He bounces around in his kennel like and is delighted to be paid any attention. An agile dog, Max will require regular exercise and a reasonable sized backyard in which to play. His new family would ideally be one with Boxer experience, and possibly another Boxer in the home. Max is not a fan of little dogs, so a home with a ... (Read More)small dog is not an option for this guy (and no cats either). Being a Boxer, Max has special needs like all Boxers, so the home we are seeking should be one where they are familiar with the breed and can accommodate and care for a Boxer. As we get to know Max better, we will add more information, however we can say that Max is a delightful boy who is sure to please any Boxer loving family. Any further training should be simple as Max is very food focussed and will do almost anything for a treat ! If you believe your home could be ideal for Max, please get in touch! We believe that dogs should be part of the family and share the home. Max is located in Londonderry (Western Sydney). (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-02-15-00354Bubbles (female)

Boxer Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    SA - Bubbles (f/3y) Bubbles is a lovely girl with a sweet nature who is looking for a family to enjoy her days relaxing with and getting out for some exercise too. She will do well in a home that will teach her things through positive reinforcement training as well as keeping her mentally stimulated through items such as treat balls and Kongs stuffed with her meals. Bubbles loves companionship and will thrive on being an indoor dog. Bubbles does have some skin issues which will need to be discussed when meeting her. Bubbles is available for adoption through application only.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Dog in Australia
    Dogs can make good pets in Australia if they match your IifestyIe. Dogs have a reputation for being "man's best friend" for excellent reasons. Dogs are wonderful companions. Many breeds, in addition to being affectionate, devoted members of the family, are useful working dogs and guardians. Most dogs form tight bonds with their humans, and need to be cared for like the valuable family members they are. But sadly, some owners do not live up to the responsibility and involvement it takes to properly care for a dog throughout its life. Dogs can become the victims of neglect or active abuse. Some dogs receive tender, attentive care from their owners, but no longer have a home after their owner passes away or experiences a major life event that makes him unable to keep his dog. There are many more dogs than there are homes for dogs, and dogs that are not spayed or neutered can accidentally produce large numbers of puppies, exacerbating overpopulation. For this reason, three to four million dogs, many of them perfectly healthy and wonderful animals, are euthanized in the U.S. each year.

    Many people get excited about owning a new dog, decide to get a puppy, and then pick one out at a pet shop or visit a breeder with a new litter. However, there are so many wonderful, friendly dogs in need of adoption, including puppies and purebreds. Some of these dogs might even be a better fit for a family than a new puppy; for instance, some adult dogs in need of adoption are already housebroken and obedience trained. Adoption is typically much less expensive than purchasing a dog. People who adopt dogs find the experience extremely rewarding, bond very closely with their dogs, and have the added satisfaction of knowing that one less animal has to be euthanized. If your family is ready for a canine companion, please consider adopting a dog!
